If BU expects the zone to start the game and throughout it then AG needs to be in the starting line up. Kofi and 4 shooters and guys that can crash the boards and no one is better at that than AG! I doubt it will happen but he will get his minutes i just wish it was from the jump!

Either way just win baby!

Agree that AG needs to play serious minutes, but some players are just better coming off the bench and, so far at least, it seems that BU thinks AG is that type of player. Of course, it might be a fun experiment to try starting him this one time to see how he reacts (or is this a bad time for an experiment?).

Anyone else overly nervous for this game? We don't gain a "good win" from this, but we can get a "Bad Loss" if we lose. These are the kinda games I hate, but gotta take care of business here...

Deon just announced that the Illini fans outnumber the Northwestern.
While it is always good to see a pro-Illini crowd at Welsh-Ryan, I hope our guys don't think they are playing a home game -- we play better on the road. :D

Earmarked this one on the schedule weeks ago as a major hurdle for the reasons you stated. NW is playing for nothing and will play loose. This is one that I'm sure they desperately want to help take something out of this season.

I'm always nervous. Every. Single. Game.
